Dr Weston Price was a pioneer in the world of nutrition and longevity as he travelled the world researching isolated healthy communities. He discovered the key to longevity and health is related to the food that was consumed and when ‘western foods’ were introduced quite the opposite was observed.
In this episode I talk with, author, presenter and the president of the Weston A Price Foundation Sally Fallon Morell about Dr Price’s findings, healthy traditional diets, the modern diet and how to bridge the gap. We explore the science of fat, grains and the most nourishing foods you can consume.
